Anti-Communism is a Fundamentalist Religion, Now Followed by Billions


150 years ago, on April 21, 1870, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, alias Lenin, was born. According to many, he was the greatest revolutionary of all times, a man who gave birth to both internationalism and anti-imperialism. It is time to “revisit Communism”. It is also time to ask some basic, essential questions: “How is it possible that…

Racism Rules America


Amid the recent surge in Russophobic politics in the US, mainly premised on fake news (the failure of “Russiagate” makes a particularly good example), the media controlled by US intelligence agencies just recently tried to unleash an aggressive anti-Russian propaganda campaign, alleging Russia played a role in inciting racial hatred among Americans in the run-up…

The Long Hot Summer Returns


The expression ‘long hot summer’ was born in the nineteen-fifties, when American Blacks first rebelled, eventually leading up to the appearance of Martin Luther King. King was assassinated in 1968, a few months before US Attorney General Jack Kennedy was also killed in the same context. From one decade to another, America’s black population, which today accounts for 13% of the total…

An Ode to Lost America and Her Hoodlum President


The United States is being called out for her hypocrisy now. The world has finally caught sight of an American dream turned into a nightmare. The so-called leader of the free world, President Donald J. Trump looks for the world like a fascist hoodlum from 1930s Italy or Germany. The coronavirus pandemic set the stage, and now the real “force” of devastation…

The Strange Case of an America in Flames


For a decade or more, the world has seen riots that weren’t riots at all, Maiden Square, Hong Kong, Tripoli, Cairo and they have seen terror attacks, Paris, Boston and others. All have been staged. Now the US is in flames. Is there something in common here? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Ukraine was overthrown by a CIA plot or that the Arab Spring…

Nostalgia for Sovereigns: The King is Dead, but Maybe New Ones on “the Horizon”


Even before this latest crisis began, there had been a distinct trend of people in democracies losing faith in their political systems. When this wave of disillusionment happened back in the 1920s and 30s, as the problems of the era overwhelmed liberal democratic structures, fascism or communism were seen as being the answer…

India in Lockdown 4.0


Among all the developments that have occurred in India in recent months, those that took place on May 12, 2020 deserve a special mention. On that day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the nation that the lockdown would be extended yet again (from May 18 to 31) in light of the continuing spread of SARS COV-2. The same day, he also announced a stimulus package to provide relief to all…

The COVID-19 Chronicles: Eastern Europe


Like much of Asia, Eastern Europe appears to have weathered the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) crisis relatively well, at least in terms of overcoming a health crisis. Total reported infections and deaths have been much lower across these nations, and the Western media has taken turns wondering just how this is possible. Statistics indicate that Covid-19 has impacted…

In the West – Propaganda, Hysteria and Truly Foul Breath!


If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be laughable: the political brigands in North America and Europe are fuming, spitting and rolling their eyes upwards towards the ceiling. They are pointing fingers in all directions, shouting incoherently “China!”, “Russia!”, “Venezuela and Cuba!”, “Iran!”; “You, You, YOU!”. China and Russia are quietly building a new world, which includes…

COVID-19 Pandemic and the Elderly Population


The COVID-19 pandemic currently ravaging the world revealed not only the vulnerabilities in social policies implemented by various countries, and in healthcare and emergency management systems, but also other afflictions that modern Western societies suffer from, such as xenophobia, indifference to the plight of the poorest communities and the focus of the elites on…

US “Woke” Community Wages Pointless War Against Huawei


When the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) withdrew from a Huawei-sponsored Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) webinar – the ethical grounds it allegedly did so on were ill-defined at best. The NABJ seemed to hint it was actually pressure on it from various other groups to cancel the webinar that spurred the decision and not any concerns…

Lies and Censorship, a Second Pandemic


On April 6, 2020, the University of Manchester published a paper titled COVID-19 Disinformation: Two Short Reports on the Russian Dimension. That paper focused on highly funded disinformation programs, some funded by the EU and/or UK governments seemingly tasked with censoring or crushing media that strayed from the official “party line.” “The EU’s main task force…
